Yeah...I'mma tell ya'll a little story...
It's a classic tale of Love, Hate, Jealousy, Betrayal...
Forgive them father for they know not what they do (let's talk to 'em)
Dear Judas what it do homie?
How you feeling these days nigga, a little lonely?
No D, no Y, no E, no Kiss, no Styles, no Ruff, no Ryders, Double R's finest
We grown men nigga, I tried to put it behind us
But niggas always mistake weakness and kindness
'Til it gets to violence, then it's too late to silence
The wolves from howlin', the gunshots, the sirens
The mindset of a nigga, when niggas got problems
Instead of resolve em, rather resort to revolvers
To be honest, betrayal is a blessing like the promise
Is broken I see through lies more than often
Look in the mirror, can you lie to your own portrait?
If so then look a little closer
And tell me who you see, and if you proud of what you saw
Cause who you are is Judas
After all that we've been through (I never thought it'd be you)
Trust someone I thought I knew (Guess I didn't know Judas)
Tellin' lies to hide the truth (Should have known they wasn't true)
Who would ever think that you (Turn out to be a Judas)
Dear Judas or should I say Judai?
I wanna say I miss you, but that might be a lie
And I can't lie to myself, too much self pride
I can lie to anyone else, at times even God
Now you claim heartbreak and emotional scars
But I say you was getting while it's good 'til it's gone
But you of all people should know my lights don't turn off
And this is my sitcom, you're just a spin-off
And I don't mean to be harsh, but sister you're lost
One like Jay and ?, Faye and Biggie
It really hurt when you said you can't throw any
M's up, baby cuz it's hurting your image, really?
Have you looked at yourself lately, if not then look a little clearly
And tell me what you see and if you proud of what you saw
Cause who you are is Judas
Dear Judas this ones for whomever the shoe fits
Cause niggas wear hate like airforce's talk shit
Of course they do it's the price of fame
If part of this is getting paid then so is being betrayed
But how it all plays out is how it's being portrayed
And I don't believe half of anything anybody says
You liar you, you lie to me here lies the truth, Rule
You in the way? Move
And I'm talking to you, you, you and you
If you know who you are then come holla at the God
Judas', Jesus, Ceaser, and Brutus is why we must forgive
Them father, for they know not what they do
I keep my hand on my gun on my Bible
And pray for ya, cause you'll never be the same since I saw you as Judas
